    Enjoyable

    I truly enjoyed reading Panache. It was a roller coster ride of action, suspense, romance and a true page turner. Can't wait for future works by this author.

    Good reading here!

    Alexandra Walker was head of the jewelry department at Sturbridge. Her ten year old son, Jason, needed a kidney transplant <I>badly.</I> During a desperate moment, Alex had copies of an expensive jewelry set made and planned to switch them for the real things, for money to get a kidney on the black market. Only seconds after she made the switch, Alex realized she could not go through with it and returned the real set. But Spurgeon in Security caught it on tape and edited out the part of Alex returning the set. He made sure Alex knew he would demand a price at a later time. <BR><BR> Alexandra attended the Fifth Annual National Kidney Foundation Celebrity Ball and Auction under orders from her supervisor. Alex was to use Sturbridge's money to out-bid anyone for the auction prize of winning a date with Chase Thomas. Chase was vice-president of 'Panache, The Jewelry Experience' and Sturbridge's direct competitor. The press would eat up the news of that date! Even though it was all for publicity, Alex and Chase <I>clicked</I> immediately and romance bloomed. <BR><BR> Enter Spurgeon and his blackmail. He forced Alex, at gun point, to help him steal the priceless and famous King Soloman's ring from Panache. He had it video taped as well, for extra blackmail material. Alex felt as though her life would never get better.<BR><BR> **** There are many sub-plots I did not mention. They are as wonderful as I believe the romance between the main couple to be. The author kept things interesting by making sure that for every positive thing that happened, one or two negative things did too. In my opinion, the ending dragged on too long, but everything else was fabulous! **** </p><BR>

    It's Like Ambrosia from the Gods...

    That line says it all about this eloquent, well-written romantic thriller. Set under the eyes of Texas, circa 1999, Alexandra Walker is off to a great start in her profession. Or is she? Inclusive in her responsibilities is her son Justin, who at present is need of medical attention quick-fast, in a hurry, so the kidney won't cause additional worry. Desparation leads her to near-larceny, however in the midst of utilizing better judgment she decides against it. It's not quick enough for sinster Spurgeon, who saw everything on video except THE TRUTH and blackmails. What to do, what to do? Enter CHASE THOMAS, Houston's resident hunk. Alex actually wins a raffle and a date, and the ride of secrets, subplots, schorching romance and thrills that last to novel's completion captures any readers attention. It garnered the attention of this scribe way back in March. Given opportunity to preview this tale, the novel carries something extra in its snappy dialogue, well-crafted amusement and white-hot scenes of passion. YOU WILL HAVE TROUBLE PUTTING THIS ONE DOWN!!! Whenever you read a debut novel from an author, you always tell through technique and plot where an author needs improvement. I wouldn't change a thing, Nathasha!!! If this initial works serves as a indication of future works, you need to shield yourself with armor to fend off the legion of fans embracing all efforts. Your career as a romantic suspense writer has gotten off to a BLAZING START!!!

    Panache

    Alexandra Walker, buyer and head of the jewelry department at Sturbridge¿s, seems to have a head start on a great career. But things are not what they seem in her life. The single mother of a very sick little boy, Alex needs every penny her job brings her and more. Her desperation in trying to meet the needs of her son, Justin, for a new kidney, leads her to the brink of stealing from her employer. With the jewelry in her hands, her innate honesty stops her. It is unfortunate that Spurgeon Brown, who works security for the store, witnesses her lapse, and video tapes the whole thing ¿ except for Alex putting the stolen jewelry back into the case. Spurgeon promises to hold the tape over her head. He has plans to blackmail her. Brianna, Alex¿s best friend, persuades her to take part in the Annual National Kidney Ball and Raffle. There, Alex meets Chase Thomas, the most eligible bachelor in Houston, and the owner of an even more prestigious Houston store, Panache. In the charity raffle, Alex wins a date with Chase. The date is the beginning of their love affair. It is a love affair full of romance and passion, slow kisses and scorching embraces. But also continual tension Alex feels since her employer is Chase¿s competition, they should not be involved. She also is fiercely independent and determined that Chase have no reason to feel she loves him only for his money. The fact that his enormous wealth would solve her little boy¿s need is constantly in her mind. So Justin and his hospitalization remains her secret. Several subplots add to the richness of this story, including Alex¿s estrangement from her mother, a lost brother who returns, and another crime Alex is forced to commit by Spurgeon. How Alex and Chase manage to end up together with all the things working against that happening makes a fascinating tale. The tale is told with perfect timing by new author, Nathasha Brooks-Harris. Ms Brooks-Harris makes us care for Alex, Chase, and Justin. For a glimpse into the highest society circles of Houston, read and enjoy Panache.

    Panache

    Alexandra Walker needs salvation. Her son is in need of a kidney transplant and she has no idea how she can afford it. Her position in Sturbridge¿s jewelry department offers her an option, but at the last minute her conscience takes over and she aborts her plan. But someone has seen and intends to blackmail her. Days later, she meets Chase Thomas at a fundraising event. He is Houston¿s most eligible and wealthy bachelor and also part owner of Panache, her industry competition. During a bachelor auction, Alexandra makes a point of placing the highest bid on Chase and wins a date with him. The sparks fly and soon the couple become romantically involved. But when the blackmailer makes his demands, Alexandra finds herself forced to betray Chase. Thinking she has no other recourse, she does what is demanded and puts everything at risk, including her life and relationship with Chase. Chase makes great hero material¿.I found myself unable to stop reading. Nathasha Brooks-Harris has a great start at building a name for herself in the romantic suspense market, and I look forward to watching her grow as a writer. Karen L. Williams, Rhapsody Magazine, The BookShelf

    Panache

    ¿I found the concept of the story to be original and fresh, and the novel was definitely a fast read. I was drawn into the lavish, upscale lifestyle of the characters¿ All in all, I found PANACHE to be an intriguing read, full of drama and twists, and a smooth, easy writing style by Brooks-Harris. Brooks-Harris pulls you into the story with her first sentence, building suspense, and leads the reader to a fast, romantically suspenseful ride. For romance readers who like a little extra with your love, PANACHE is definitely a novel to add to your reading list. With my interest piqued after reading PANACHE, I¿ll be looking out for future projects by Brooks-Harris.¿

    Panache

    PANACHE is a wonderful and thrilling romantic thriller set in Texas in 1999. Panache is a fabulous store filled with exquisite jewelry, clothing, and a spa catering to the very wealthy. It is headed up by the Thomas family who also own a huge ranch and complex in an exclusive community, plus suites of rooms in the Panache Tower. Chase Thomas is the son of the owner and a man about town and labeled the most eligible bachelor as well. Alexandra Walker is a single mother who is head buyer for the jewelry department of Sturbridge¿s. Her son, Justin, is in the hospital awaiting a donor for a kidney that he desperately needs to survive. Alexandra is desperate to find a donor for her son and is caught on video by a security guard as she is attempting to steal precious jewelry from Stubridge¿s to sell on the black market to save her son. However, at the last moment she puts it back. The only fly in the ointment is the horrible security guard that takes the diamonds and then threatens Alexandra with exposure and her life if she won¿t help him steal a fabulous emerald ring from Panache. These dirty rotten thieves always seem to get you when you are the most vulnerable don¿t they? Alexandra and Chase meet at the Southwestern Hills Country Club Celebrity Ball and Auction for the Fifth Annual National Kidney Foundation where Alexandra gets the high bid and wins a date with the drop dead gorgeous Chase Thomas. Alexandra¿s best friend Briana helps her get ready for her fantasy date and I had as much fun as they did getting Alex ready as Chase arrives in a limo and just treats Alex divinely. The two hit it off as Chase takes Alex into his magical world of the rich and famous who are wealthy beyond everything. Sometimes just hearing the delicious meals made me want to go to the kitchen and start cooking. See if you don¿t feel the same way when you read this dynamite treat of a book. There are lots of twists and turns in this book and you are always getting some sort of surprise. There are tons of colorful characters, good suspense, wonderful family values, and a delicious love story to keep you turning the pages. Ms. Harris has some snappy dialogue, and a good sense of humor to relieve the tense moments. A very enjoyable read that I high recommend. Nathasha Brooks-Harris sure knows how to get you entangled in one of her excellent stories of romantic suspense with a to-die-for hero in a matter of seconds. They should clone Chase Thomas! I know I¿m looking forward to her next book already. Suzanne 'Wow, Would I Ever Love to be Swept Off my Feet by the Charming Chase Thomas, and Taken on One of his Mystery Evening Adventures!'
